Pathways to Justice, an initiative of The Arc’s National Center on Criminal Justice and Disability (NCCJD), is a comprehensive, community-based program designed to improve access to justice for people with disabilities. The Talk about Sexual Violence project of The Arc gives health care professionals the tools they need to have simple, direct, and honest conversations with their patients with IDD about sexual violence.  Learn about the work being done on these initiatives and more.
